          Hi krishnaraj

          Sounds like you may be expecting Captivate to work identically to Flash. Sorry my friend, it doesn't work this way. For starters, notice that Captivate uses slides. Each slide has its own timeline. So what you see in the timeline area is not for the whole movie.

          As you add objects (Buttons, Click Boxes, Images, Rollover Areas, Etc.) the object is placed on the timeline and assumes what you are referring to as a layer. You then control which object is in front of another object by its relative position in the layer. This is called the "Stacking Order".

          Hopefully this helps... Rick

            Hi Rick,

            This is what I had in my mind. Yeah, I am Flash Designer/Developer.

            Thank you very much for the info.
